The alphabetical letters below describe the details in the package table above

(a) This all depends on type, capacity and age of Battery. Loads also have an impact on battery backup times. For example; a 200-400W deep freezer can deplete batteries faster. All systems should be spec'd according to load requirements and client expectations.


(b) It is not recommended to run fridge/freezers on smaller UPS units (1-2kVa)with other loads. Run times (depending on battery bank size), can deplete backup times.


(c) Any appliance with a heating element is discouraged on a UPS and most smaller Inverter/Solar systems, due to high load and influx of current on the back-up system installed.


(d) As per point (c) heating elements are discouraged. SMT Energy encourages the use of Gas (of which is far more economical than electrical), for water heating, kettle, stoves, geysers and the likes.


(e) Warrantees on system differ depending on type and brand. Typically AGM/Lead acid batteries hold a 1 year warrantee. UPS/Inverters/solar Inverter units between 1-2 years. Lithium Iron 1-2 years.


(f) Life span and batteries can vary. Typically 2-4 years for AGM/Lead acid batteries, and 4-10 years on Lithium Iron Batteries. Environmental conditions, loads and cycling of batteries all plays a part to battery life spans.


(g) Upgradable/Expandable.


(h) Cannot mix old and new batteries for expansion/longer backup periods on batteries older than 1year.


(i) Single and Three phase options available.


(j) Installation costs vary depending on a the following factors: Travel, Condition of electrical works, Electrical works required to separate loads, All and or any accessories (DB boards, switch gear, fuses, cables etc.).


(k) Depending on electrical loads required on back-up system.


(l) Inverter dependant. Smart Module may be required.


(m) Installation and or Battery bank size dependant


Delivery costs apply according to area.
